    Just started playing this game really. Can someone explain to me how this works? Is it randomly dealing cards or a win/tie/lose situation? This is not a complaint or anything - I'd just like to know.

    The reason I ask is that so many hands seem to resemble each other (A,A,J,6,5 winning to A,A,J,7,5) .

    In addition there seems to be a disparate amount of big hands (straights up to straight flushes).

    Just looking for info here.

    Thanks.

    Its supposedly a random game of chance, with cards drawn. The potential for winning on pai gow is huge for example by getting a 7 card straight or a royal flush which pays a fortune but the chances are very slim. Ive played it a few times and never seen any win high up on the win table.

    That's only true when you play the bonus. Normaly you can lose your bet or win your bet plus 0.95% of your bet. But most of the time it's a tie...

    A really boring game if you ask me...

    Sorry yes thatis with playing the bonus, but i dont realyl see the point by not. It would be a nightmare to get dealt a 7 card straight flush and NOT have a bonus bet on lol

    Well I certainly hope it's random!

    I play it quite a lot at Crypto's, and although I agree it can be 'streaky' I can't really say there's anything wrong with it.
    Due to the 7 cards, big hands are quite common.

    Note (for those that don't know) Crypto don't have a bonus side bet, but MG do.

    As stated above, Crypto Pai Gow does not have a bonus side bet. Wins pay 1:1 with a 5% commission.

    I've played a bit of Pai Gow at crypto casinos, but I never did the bonus bet. I did get a straight flush though :mad:

    It's a decent game to clear a bonus WR with since you get lots of ties offsetting the house edge. It's also pretty fun when playing it without using a "house way" button.

    I'm a little confused. House Way? Bonus? At crypto?

    Thanks for all the replies though. I was seriously interested in how the cards are chosen - I was just wondering whether they are engineered to created action hands. And that wasn't a rigged claim - i'm pretty sure win/lose/tie rate is pretty standard - just wondered whether it enhances an otherwise dull game.

    You get 7 cards and have to make the highest value of 5 cards and the second highest value of the 2 other cards. If you click on the houseway button the casino will choose the optimal formation of the cards.
    If you win both the highest and second highest you win. If you win 1 it's a tie.

    There is also some side bet bonus system. If you make a good hand with your highest hand you can get some sort of a jackpot.

    For more information: You must register/login in order to see the link.

    Crypto pai gow has no house way button, so obviously the only way to play is manually choosing your hands :)

    On other casinos (MG, Playtech iirc) there is a house way button so you don't have to make the hands yourself if you're just interested clearing a wagering requirement on a bonus. I prefer doing something more fun though :)

    Me too!
    House way just makes you lazy - I like to think about the split.
    I don't know the stats, but I would guess the bonus side bet that some softwares use is a 'sucker bet' as on Caribbean Stud, Let it Ride etc...
    Obviously great if you hit a biggie, but otherwise just a terrible drain on your bankroll. :mad:

    Since you already have a joker in hand and it counts as an ace/wild card for straights and flushes, it would probably have been better to set the cards at a pair ot tens for the low hand and kings for th high hand. Just my opinion.

    BTW, if only there was a bonus bet at Playtech.
